MedTrainer’s Hira Rashid Predicts Compliance Trends in Outcomes Rocket Podcast

Melissa Whetzel

In an episode of Outcomes Rocket podcast, MedTrainer Policy Expert Hira Rashid, Ph.D. offers insight into healthcare policy changes on the horizon and the predicted impact on compliance. In The Impact of Health Policy on Your Compliance Strategy, Hira talks about the macro trends in healthcare that could lead to policy change — for example the focus on cost savings and outcome improvements. She hints that changes you see within the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) are likely to carry over to private payers and become industry standard.

“If your Medicare providers are doing data outcomes tracking, this is a good time to start implementing that more broadly because it is going to start becoming standardized in the private sector. It’s already becoming important for accreditation,” Hira explains.
